Adaptogens - Modern Biomedical Understanding of Ancient Herbs

Speaker: 

Great introductory lesson, Amy knows a lot of information and it shows. I would like to say that the questions from the class were not audible at all. I felt like there should have been a way to add them to the online course. ~ Mario
